Laser aiming devices on defensive pistols can be a great asset in specific circumstances, but they shouldn’t be relied upon as the primary aiming device. Quite often, people who rely on a laser during training and/or practice allow their fundamentals to become lax because they rely on the laser to help them get hits on paper. Generally speaking, shooting with a laser while training for most typical defensive shooting scenarios will slow a shooter down as well. In this video, Rob Pincus and Jay White discuss the issue of laser on defensive pistols.
